What makes a great teacher?

In the investigate part of the design cycle we learned lots about tutorials. In tutorials you teach about a thing you want to learn the people and where you are good at.

Here is what a great teacher needs:
A Great teacher needs to explain everything clearly so everyone can understand it. Also a great teacher needs to not do everything in one time but in clear steps.
The teacher needs to speak loud and clearly so everything is easy to follow.
The Teacher should be communicating enthusiastic and passionate.
When the teacher shows something he needs to show everything good so everyone can see it well. When the teacher makes a video and the teacher is outside when the video is shown, maybe a voice over is needed, because then everyone can hear what happens in the video.

I thought the best IB learner profile for the Investigate part is “approaches to learning” because we are talking about tutorials and tutorials are things you want to learn other people.

Why do we tell myths?

First a myth is a story that is usually not true and people believe in it.
People think they are true because they think they are real happened because there are sometimes gods in the myths and some people believe in gods.
There are lots of countries who have myths because every country have ever made  a story about something what they thought what was true.

The people are telling myths because they want to show why some of the things they believe in are so important. Also they want to tell the myths because they want you also to believe in what they believe.
They also want to show things what they think what is right such how the world come? They want you to believe in what they think.

There are lots of myths such as the myth of Zeus.
The Aztecs also had myths such as that the sun god  gave them the light of the sun and they thought they need to give offers to the gods because otherwise the gods do not gave them the things they wanted.
Hercules is also myth because the people say he is the sun of Zeus.

Intro

I Technology class we made a practice tutorial and we selected our favourite tutorial. Now I am going to tell you the differences between them and what i think is the best. And finally I am going to talk about what I learned.

My favourite tutorial & my practice tutorial :


Differences:

1.My practice tutorial was in steps and my favourite tutorial did not had much steps. I think it is clear when it has steps.
2.My practice tutorial was a presentation and my favourite tutorial a video. I think it depends on the subject what is best.
3.My practice tutorial had written words and my favourite tutorial was spoken. I think it is more clear when you hear the explanation and see it at the same time.
4. In my practice tutorial  talked about one thing and in my favourite tutorial he talked about more things. I think it is more clear when you do just one thing, not more.

What I learned is how to make a great tutorial. How do you do that?
To show everything in clear steps, to look at the subject and choose what is the best way to present your tutorial, to add spoken words to make it more clear and finally to talk about just one thing and not more.

 

We have all commented on the favourite tutorials of the people of my grade. I have commented on the the blogs of : Kenryo,Tsuyoshi and Quirijn. Of all the tutorials i learned something.

Here is Quirijn’s favourite tutorial, I learned of it that when you shoot a layup you need to shoot the ball when you are going past the net, not when you are standing still and not moving.Also you need to have the ball in you left hand when you come from the left side and when you come from the right side you need to have the ball in you right hand,also when you are not so big you need to jump higher.

Here is kenryo’s favourite tutorial. I think this is a very good tutorial because I learned 4 very good magic tricks and they are simple to do such as you have a paper simple phone and you talk and somebody is very bad to you you can burn it or rip the paper.
It Is a very good tutorial because it are pretty simple tricks and you can do them also very simple. He also speaks clearly and explains well how the trick works.

And here the last tutorial is from Tsuyoshi. I learned from this tutorial how you can make with just a pen/pencil, a ruler and an eraser on a simple way very cool 3D letters.

We also have made a tutorial research,we looked to 3 or more tutorials and we rated them here is my tutorial research

 

Conclusion

What I learned from the Investigate part of the design cycle is : how to make a perfect tutorial and how to make a simple tutorial on google presentations,I think that were also the most important parts we needed to learn.
